Veggie brand Linda McCartney’s has launched two new vegan-friendly festive dishes for this Christmas – and brought back an old favorite.

Returning to shelves is Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Roast (£5.00) – a turkey-flavored soy roast with lentils, sultanas, pumpkin seeds, and millet, finished with a spiced Bramley apple and pomegranate sauce.

New vegan Christmas products

The new products include Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Turkey and Cranberry Plait (£2.00). According to the brand: “The new dish has an enticing turkey-flavor and is filled with butternut, spinach, and cranberry with soy and wheat protein; wrapped in puff pastry plait.”

In addition, Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Red Onion and Rosemary Stuffing Balls (£2.75) will be hitting shelves. “These ridiculously tasty seasoned Vegetarian Stuffing Balls are made with soy protein, and are jam-packed with red onions and rosemary. Serve alongside the Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Roast for a fantastic accompaniment,” said the brand.


“Every family has that one dish that no one can get enough of during the festive season and for me, it’s the Vegetarian Roast,” Paul McCartney said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“This really is a family favorite, and we love that we still get to embrace the tradition of carving up the roast. We hope it becomes a new Christmas tradition for many more.”

Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Roast, and Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Red Onion and Rosemary Stuffing Balls, are available exclusively from the chilled aisle at Tesco. Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Turkey and Cranberry Plait can be sourced exclusively from the frozen aisle at Sainsbury’s.
